A body found in an Illinois forest preserve is believed to be a 27-year-old woman from Gary, Indiana, who went missing last month and may have been kidnapped, according to the FBI. 

The body was found in the Thornton-Lansing Road Forest Preserve in the south suburbs, the FBI said.

An autopsy was scheduled for Tuesday. No other information has been released since the discovery.

Sidne-Nichole Buchanan was last seen July 27 at a concert in Tinley Park, Illinois. After not having contact with her, Buchanan's family reported her missing the following Monday.

The FBI was initially offering a $10,000 reward in the case.

The investigation is ongoing.

Anyone with information about her whereabouts is asked to call the FBI at 219-942-4655.
